Dare I DIY?: Fall Leaf Banner


Fall is the best crafting season of them all (I did not intentionally rhyme there, but I can write you a poem if you so desire). The possibilities are endless and nature offers the best materials. For some reason I have a penchant for making holiday decor from leaves. Perhaps it is my upbringing in the Pacific Northwest, and leaves and trees everywhere bring a wave of nostalgia. 

The best thing about this leaf banner is that it costs about $5 to make and it gives your home a minimal, woodsy feel. The leaves I picked are about 6x6 inches, and I purchased the clothespins from Michaels. They are the little 2 inch ones, however you can use regular size clothespins if you prefer the look or they fit the size of your leaves better. The best part? This project took a total of 30 minutes, leaf collecting and all, and it is a superb DIY to create with your kiddos! What kid doesn't love picking leaves, or adult for that matter?
